Forty years ago, a helpful mentor-like acquaintance uttered the word "Plastics" to Ben Braddock, better known as The Graduate, in an attempt to guide Ben along the path of sure success. Today, there's plenty of sentiment that word would be "Nanotechnology."
For all its promise and trumpeting, however, even a basic understanding of nanotech, let alone some of its likely commercial uses, is elusive. In the area of security, especially, trying to pin down what might become a nanotech-based industry standard is still an extreme guessing game.
However, the recent creation of a molecular-level keypad lock by researchers at Israel's Weizmann Institute of Science shows how researchers are synthesizing commonplace technological principles of IT at the molecular level.
